Alla ricerca del Nador

By: Enrico Bonino
Area: Western Alps, Group: Valsavarenche, Height: 1850m, Country: Italy, Region: Valle d'Aosta

Pleasant and short icefall which varies from a slab start to a free standing finish.

GETTING THERE

From Turin take the motorway north towards France and exit at Aosta West/ Saint Pierre. Continue towards Courmayeur, after circa 3 km turn off right for Valsavarenche. Drive up the valley to the last bridge which crosses River Savara.
From Chamonix drive through the Mont Blanc tunnel and reach Courmayeur. Follow the main road towards Aosta and after Arvier turn off for Valsavarenche and contiue on up to the bridge.

ACCESS

Reach the car park used for Rifugio Chabod and continue for circa 1 km. Pass the icefall Antares (hydrographic left) and park as best possible on the left. The icefall is located above the forest to the right, beneath the road which leads to Col del Nivolet. 5 minutes.

DESCENT

From the top of the icefall set up an ice belay and recuperate your second. The descent is on foot, traversing right to reach a blue fixed rope (check its condition carefully. Use this to reach the base of the icefall).

GEAR

Normal ice climbing gear, rescue beacon, shovel, probe.
